Automated cloud-based GEOINT architecture developed for AFRL

WESTMINSTER, Colo. Maxar Technologies, Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure company, announced that it has been awarded a $14.2 million contract to develop Red Wing, an automated, cloud-based geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) analysis architecture for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). Maxar’s Red Wing architecture is intended to enable analysts to focus on addressing some of the most challenging intelligence problems by automating time-consuming workflows.

Red Wing will also aim to enhance the production of actionable insights from raw information through advanced exploitation and visualization services and edge node processing. For ease of use, Maxar is designing the architecture to integrate with legacy systems.

Red Wing also expands the use of Amazon-managed services through careful assessment of emerging offerings with the goals of improving resiliency, reducing cost, and reducing exposure to cyber threats.
